Telefonica Deutschland (germany)-grab, Nokia, and Huawei for 5G network

BERLIN (Reuters) – Telefonica Deutschland said on Wednesday that it had chosen Nokia (Finland) and China’s Huawei [HWT.UL] and partners to get the 5G network, which is expected to start construction at the beginning of the year 2020.

The co-operation with suppliers and service providers of the network will depend upon both the receipt of the required certification in Germany, even before the completion of the regulations for the setting up of a commission of inquiry, technology, and the management of the suppliers.

“With this decision we have to take into account the fact that the political process has not yet been completed, without delaying the start of the 5G network buildout,” the company said in a statement.
